Omnis’ Creative Profiles at Paddington Station

Omnis’ Creative Profiles at Paddington Station

Around 3,000 sq m of one of Omnis’ Creative Profiles were used to create a contemporary look and feel to the fourth span of Paddington Station’s roof.

The fourth span was added in 1916 to Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s original three-span design, but it fell into disrepair in the 1990s. Contractor Morgan Sindall had the daunting task of creating the new structure on the Grade 1 listed building, serving up to 180,000 passengers a day, while keeping six platforms operational and watertight.

The result is a triumph. The ‘saw tooth’ profile, in 1.2mm thickness steel, is plastisol coated on both sides in Goosewing Grey on the outside and Terracotta on the inside. The effect is dramatic on the inside while blending perfectly with the London skyline when viewed from the outside.
